Heritage Bathrooms – Harnessing neutral tones for autumn
The leaves are growing brown and crispy, the weather is changing and autumn is progressively approaching. Here are a few ways to invite neutral tones into your interior design to welcome the new season.
Embrace Neutrals this Autumn
The leaves are growing brown and crispy, the weather is changing and autumn is progressively approaching. As you prepare to hunker down at home, consider inviting neutral tones into your interior design to welcome the new season.
Neutrals to enhance your space
What is a neutral? Neutral shades are muted and often have underlying hues that change with different lighting- examples include beige, taupe, grey, cream, brown, black, and white. These colours go with almost anything which is exactly what makes them so versatile.
An added advantage of neutrals is their ability to dissolve strong emotions. A strong red, deep blue or vibrant green room can be a lot for the senses. Neutrals are an effortless way to create a calming, sensory escape.
Textures and shapes
Many are concerned that neutrals will make a room feel tired and drab. To avoid this, add unusual textures and shapes to the bathroom to draw the eye and add dimension and interest. Towels and bathmats are an easy way to add texture so choose rough tufted materials with tassels, pom poms or embroidery.
For shapes, consider a round mirror with an unexpected frame, or perhaps enhance a classic style such as our chrome arched mirror, with lights for illumination and to create a focal point in the room. Pick intentional shapes, decorate with art and sculptures or dome shaped basins, such as the Caversham wall hung vanity unit, available in dove grey and ivory lace.
The monochrome home
Cohesion can often be the key to unlocking the potential of neutrals. By choosing shades from the same colour pallet, you can effortlessly create a warm, inviting and relaxing aura in the bathroom. Heritage offers a variety of furniture styles all available in a selection of neutrals as well as darks and brights to allow you to create a harmonious look that suits your personal tastes.
Neutrals are called neutral for a reason; they are extremely adaptable shades and depending on how they’re harnessed can completely transform a room. A rustic bathroom, for instance, is no trouble at all.
Introduce sandy tones, shabby chic accessories and rough unpolished wood to your bathroom. Sleek and modern more up your alley? Neutrals also lend themselves to this, embrace pure white and taupe for an upmarket refined look. Or perhaps you prefer the quaint country look? In this case opt for deep warm neutrals paired with traditional staples. A Dorchester or Granley fitted bath with bath panels in classic ivory, white, dove grey or oyster is the perfect choice to add that cottage charm to any bathroom. Go a step further with the Dawlish bath shower mixer taps and you have a cohesive country look.
No matter what style or colour combination you choose for your bathroom, Heritage has something for you.
